Golden Nuggets: Steve Williams and the Cal Bears Turn in Strong Performances at the NFL Combine

James Snook-US PRESSWIRE

Steve Williams' unofficial 4.25 40-yard dash was the highlight of the Combine, but his teammates also turned in some impressive performances.

The NFL combine is wrapping up today, but Steve Williams made sure the final day was a memorable one. He ran a blistering 4.25 (unofficial) in his first timed 40 (video here). That would have been the fastest 40-yard dash since 2008. Unfortunately, the official time was quite a bit slower--but by the time the official was announced everyone had already heard that Steve "Speedy" Williams more than lives up to his nickname. Take a look at the rest of the Bears' results from the four-day festivities.

Now if you want to be slow and fight it and say I haven’t done it that way before, then three years from now you can watch us play in the Rose Bowl. Or you can make it happen now. This thing can happen immediately overnight. It’s up to you. If you buy in immediately, then we can be good immediately."
